About the Department
Periodontology is the study of the specialized hard and soft tissues supporting the teeth and maintaining their position in the jaw. This apparatus is known as periodontium. In many ways, mouth can be seen as a mirror of the general condition of the body. Periodontitis, which is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gums, is also triggered by systemic diseases apart from the main etiological agent i.e. plaque. Because of this association with general health and overlap with other medical disciplines, Periodontology can rightly be regarded as a “holistic” form of dentistry.

It is a great privilege for me to be the Head of Department, Department of Periodontology of Swargiya Dadasaheb Kalmegh Smruti Dental College and Hospital. I strongly believe that the philosophy, discipline and the teaching scenario of our Institute is the backbone of our success. Participation in the organization and development of departmental modules allowed me to develop a series of invaluable personal and professional connections.
